However, its principles are useful for architects in their clear allocation of design activities to members of the project team. Its value for architects, suggests RIBA Head of Technical Practice Alex Tait, lies in the way it sets out the level of detail they should be providing to other designers, such as structural and services engineers, as the design progresses. The framework also suggests how much information architects should be receiving back at each stage, so that the inputs from all sides can be coordinated effectively. Appropriate activities and outputs are suggested for inclusion for selection and allocation to different parties. It contains drawing definitions and examples of what level of detail these drawings might typically contain. The advent of graphical modelling outputs has enabled models to be checked for clashes between services and other disciplines, or between the individual services elements.

Overview The 5th edition represents a significant update from the previous edition. The release of this new edition ensures that BG 6 continues to be the industry standard document for building services consultants and contractors to help them, and their clients, clarify and define the extent of their design activity and their design deliverables on any specific project.
The structure of this 5th edition has been arranged in order to provide more information and guidance on its purpose and how to use it. This includes some examples of using various proformas, together with their corresponding Appendix B spreadsheets. To enable design activities to be chosen to best suit the needs of a particular project, the proformas have been reviewed.
This has resulted in some having been combined — proformas 3a and 3b in the 4th edition have been combined into a single proforma 3 in the 5th edition, covering the whole of RIBA Stage 3. Similarly, profomas 4a, 4b and 4c in the 4th edition have been combined into a single proforma 4 in the 5th edition, covering the whole of RIBA Stage 4. Proforma 0 has been deleted. Additional drawings have been included to give more guidance on electrical and public health services content, as well as some building cross sections to demonstrate coordination of services at pinch points.
The spreadsheet has added functionality to allow the selection of different levels of information, as well as alternative classification structures. The following files are attached to the PDF of the guide and are available as a free download to anyone purchasing a hard copy of the guide: An editable Excel workbook of the Appendix B proforma: Allocation of system-specific deliverables to project participants Locked Excel workbooks of example of using the Appendix A proformas together with the corresponding Appendix B examples , extracts of which appear in Appendix C.

What architects can learn from the ‘Bible for Building Services Engineers’
The role of BG 6 is to provide a platform where these activities can be identified and allow them to be allocated to individual organisations or roles within the project team. BG 6 was first published in to facilitate and accelerate clarity over the roles and duties of those involved in the design phases of construction projects. They have also highlighted the need for clarity around existing topics such as the resolution of clashes throughout the design stages and defining coordination roles and responsibilities. These are addressed in the new edition!
